  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. In a bowl, stir together the garlic, cumin, ginger, cardamom seeds, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper. Spread the mixture on both sides of the pork chops, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (longer is better). Place the potatoes into a roasting dish, and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil; sprinkle with the oregano, thyme, rosemary, and parsley. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper.
  3. Roast the potatoes in the preheated oven until tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat, and pan-fry the pork chops until browned on both sides, the meat is no longer pink inside, and the juices run clear, 8 to 10 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a chop should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Transfer the pork chops into the roasting dish with the potatoes, and bake until the thermometer reads 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), about 10 more minutes. Serve chops with potatoes.

These porkchops and potatoes are fab. Excellent, perky flavour, combined with a nice salad, it's a lovely meal.

I made this without the cardamon seeds and using dry herbs. I feel like the seeds would have given the meat a better 'spicy' kick and my pieces turned out on the dry side. I even cut the time do...

The potatoes were the best part of this meal...very lovely flavors when roasted in the oven. I didn't have the cardamom pods, so omitted that ingredient. My pork chops had a good flavor, but the...

My boyfriend and I loved it!! I didn't have the ginger root or the cardamom pods but it was still delicious !!! Awesome recipe!

This dish was wonderful. Husband isn't a huge pork fan so I try to keep his interest with flavorful dishes. He loved both the chops and the potatoes. I served with broccoli. I really liked t...

Easy and flavorful! I didn't use the cardamom seeds and had to substitute some dry herbs for fresh, but the potatoes turned out great. The pork could've cooked a little less, but all in all, thi...

These were fabulous! My daughter couldn't stop talking about dinner tonight. I have to admit, I was a bit worried about the cumin spice as it can overwhelm most dishes but everything turned out...
